    when you push more boost than your oem map sensor can register, it shows itself as a map sensor cel, correct? cause i pushed a little over 10 psi tonight, and all of a sudden i was getting a code 3 and my car was running like shit. once i reset the ecu, the light went off and everything was fine. so, i need a gm 3 bar map sensor, right? and if that is what i need, what do i ask for at the parts store? what is it off of, or what is the part number, or is there some other way of distinquishing it? thanks.

    thanks for the part number. is there any other problems that would cause me to throw the map cel and then it go away after reseting the ecu. just wondering because i've run that level of boost before without this happening, or is it just luck of the draw? and what all is required to hook up the 3bar? do you just wire it in? or do you have to do something to the computer for it to read properly?
